Hi everyone. I have finally found time to stop in and see how this drawing is going. I started on mine and had difficulty with the sand dunes. Nolan stated that he was going to try and put a class together for this. Does anyone know if he did and if so, which class is it?  Hoping to get the time to finish this one and start another.

Vidar this is excellent,  the foot steps in the sand was the hardest part and you did great  :yippee:

Gpeachy,  I did not see an other class on the sand.  What you should is go back to the class and review it a few times it helps to get it.   I had trouble with this one too.  Hope this will help.

That is a great idea. It has been awhile since I have viewed it. Who knows maybe it will be clear as sand this time.  :yippee:

I did answer the question in one of the live classes, but have not edited the actual segment out yet. Here is the raw replay of the live class. The part you are interested in is at around 17 minutes and 33 seconds in:

Yeah, I finally finished my sand dunes. I had started this several years ago and I am thrilled to have started drawing and painting again.

Great shore grass on the left, Ginger.  Nice job roughing up the overlapping footprints in the sand.

I love the sand dune scene. Like Mea said, the grass on the left and the rough sand look great! Such a pretty drawing, Ginger.

Thank you both, it was a lot of fun. I had struggled with the footprints but like the heavily traveled look.

You sure have been busy Ginger. This drawing looks great, well done :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
To add extra depth, darken the very foreground. This contrast will add an illusion of distance to the drawing. Take a look at mine to see that it doesn't take a large area of dark to do it O0

Thanks for the remarks, I am making up for lost time :yippee:. I did take a look at yours and the darker sand in the foreground does give it depth, I will shade this in on mine.
